Update: March 5, 2021 Chris Rasmussen, joined the SAL Board in February 2021. His name and photo are now on the SAL Board webpage, He is NOT one of the people who Knew and said nothing.
Update December 11, 2020: It turns out there is NO EVIDENCE to support Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos News Release of December 4, 2020 “On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000.” No booking photo, and no record of her being in Jail or Court until December 9, 2020.
This case is being Prosecuted by the State of California A.G. Office.
Barbara Bonilla the former Campaign Manager for Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos in 2018, and a former San Mateo County Sheriff Employee until she resigned while being investigated by the State of California Department of Justice since February 10, 2020 when she was escorted from the SAL offices in Redwood City. She was also on the San Mateo County Parks and Recreation Commission, as well as on the Boards for State and Federal Police Activity Leagues (PAL) Associations.
She has been charged with 7 felony counts after being Independently Investigated by the A.G.’s Office for Embezzlement and Laundering. San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe had to refer the Investigation to the A.G. because he is also on the Sheriff Activity League Board. Her bail was set at $70,000 she should be out by now.
SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus, xSMCSO Jeffrey C. Kearnan, and Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lead an Investigation by the Sheriff’s Office, Why? Obvious Conflict of Interest
If that were true what took so long to file charges? That’s over 3 months to file charges.
Why would the Police Report be ordered Sealed?
